    After 6 weeks i FINALLY got my neck from warmoth. yes, 6 weeks from sending away the fax until it arrived in a 4ft long box on my front door step. but i do live in australia.

    Anyway here she is. Pau/Pao Ferro fretboard, paddle headstock, 21 jumbo frets, maple neck. All up it cost me $300AUD, im still to figure out weather or not its worth all that money, but it certainly looks the part!! My only regret is that i didnt get the 24 fret option for an extra $37

    ...and here she is put up against the body. the body (silky oak) will be a little more orange when its waxed. i apologise for the quality of these photos aswell, stupid flash :spit:

    One question though, does anyone have a good shape for the headstock, because i seriosly have nothing :D

    Whoa! Cool body style, I'd cut those little chunks away from around the neck pocket though. Taking some influence from Warrior in the body?

    yea, cut some. even if you did get the 24 fret, you'd have one hell of a time playing that high

    If you look, there is an outline cut out around those chunks. It looks like he is going to cut them, he just hasn't gotten around to it yet.
     
  6. I really like that body shape...you did a very nice job!

    About the headstock...the first shape that popped into my mind was a Gibson Flying "V" shape...I think that would kick @55!
